A 75g box of Whole Leaf Loose Sencha Green Tea with super antioxidants is a deliciously bittersweet cup that will give your day an extra boost. When steeped, the tea taste is light, fresh and smooth and good any time of day!
This green leaf from the Anhui Province of Eastern China is a must for every tea lovers collection. The green tea leaves are hand rolled before drying out to stop the oxidisation process (this is what makes green tea different to black teas and oolong teas). As they have minimal processing (like white teas) they retain all the taste, antioxidants and health benefits within the leaves. Win win!
This tea is a versatile one and can be used to infuse cool and hot drinks with flavour, add flavour to green soups, plus in baking and smoothie bowls too.
What are the health benefits of green tea?
Due to its minimal manufacturing process, the tea retains all the antioxidants and nutrients from the tea leaves that then make it into the final drink. Green tea has high levels of polyphenols & cathechins (antioxidants) which are linked to cutting the risk of cancer, improving your brain function and lowering the risk of chronic diseases.

The perfect green tea
Step 1: Use one teaspoon of Loose Leaf Tea per cup (or use the Simplicitea Loose Leaf Tea Infuser to brew a perfect cup each time).
Step 2: Use water that has cooled to 80 degrees, adding freshly boiled water to green tea will cause the taste to be bitter! (You can do this by adding a splash of cold water first or allowing the kettle to cool down for approximately 2 mins)
Step 3: Brew for 90 seconds, or leave for longer according to personal taste
Step 4: Green tea is best without milk & can be resteeped 3-5 times

Guilt free sipping
We’re a nation of tea monsters consuming over 165 million cuppas every year and growing. To keep up with the worlds growing love affair with tea in a socially just and environmentally sustainably way, the Ethical Tea Partnership was formed. Working with individual tea estates, We Are Tea help producers & smallholder farmers raise their performance against international social & environmental standards to produce ethical tea, as well as address key issues holding back tea sustainability in the global tea producing regions through training and support.
We Are Tea are committed to helping the environment by removing pesky plastic from their packaging completely by the end of this year, along with having 100% biodegradable and compostable teabags and takeaway cups in all their stores.
Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
Please store away from direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place. Consume within 2 years from purchase for optimum freshness.
